Summer Intensive: Plaster & Image Transfers


  • Nevada Art Museum, E.L. Cord Museum School 160 West Liberty Street Reno, NV, 89501 United States

Monday - Friday, June 26 - 30 / 9 am - 12 pm

Ancient and earthy, plaster is a beautiful surface to hold mixed media painting of all types. Texture is easily achieved and organic forms are simply created with this unusual medium. Students will explore using both Plaster of Paris and plaster infused fabric to create multi-layered two-dimensional paintings and three-dimensional sculptures and structures. Once the structures and paintings are constructed in plaster, students will learn various mixed media techniques and multiple ways to transfer images onto the surfaces. Everyone will come away with unique projects and an understanding of how to use plaster to enhance mixed media work.
